APICS Certifications

The American Association for Operations Management is the international standard for education in operations management. The courses are suitable for people from operational to strategic levels within organizations.


APICS has established ASCM. The ASCM (Association for Supply Chain Management) means to help Supply chain managers further. They offer the APICS training programs and form allegiances with DDI and IBF to further help supply chain professionals move forward. ASCM recognizes us as a Premier Partner for their APICS programs and as an ASCM consulting partner to further support our customers improve supply chains. 

ASCM, the new name of APICS

Since 2016 APICS has rebranded into ASCM. ASCM stands for the Association for Supply Chain Management and aims to help supply chain managers with knowledge and developments. The APICS training programs kept their name after this name change. They have partnered with both Demand Driven Institute and Institute for Business Forecasting since 2016 to help supply chain professionals move forward. Both these institutes were already collaborating with us before these partnerships. ASCM recognizes us as Premier Partner for their training programs. We are also an ASCM consulting partner, which means that we can help customers further improve the supply chain with the tools that ASCM makes available.


The international standard

Leading software suppliers such as SAP, QAD, ORACLE, and Microsoft Dynamics use the APICS concepts and terminology in their software. Also, local software suppliers such as Exact use the terminology taught in APICS courses.

Premier Channel Partner

Visie Partners is a Premier Channel Partner in the Netherlands. This partnership means high quality and a contribution to the supply chain community and an extensive range of APICS products.

We see it as our job is to offer our courses with the highest quality standard possible. To ensure APICS quality, we adhere to the regulations regarding course meetings and the official APICS material.

Our experience and that of Premier Channel Partners worldwide have shown that a completed training with a Premier Channel Partner gives an extra boost to a trainee's career.

APICS certification maintenance

It is necessary to keep your knowledge up to date to maintain your certification. Keeping your knowledge up to date can be done by taking courses, participating in workshops, or attending APICS (partner) events. For example, the annual ASCM conference is good for 24 maintenance points. To keep up with your certification, you need to achieve 75 maintenance points every five years. To keep track of these maintenance points, we offer all our customers free access to our supply chain network, scnet.nl.

ASCM Instructor Development

We partner with ASCM to provide educators worldwide with teaching skills. We offer these courses in collaboration with other ASCM trainers in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North Amerika. All Visie Partners trainers are part of the ASCM program to improve their teaching skills continuously.
